Interested in joining my group as a postdoc?

I have funding for 1-2 postdocs to work on algorithm development in phylogenomics, multiple sequence alignment, or metagenomics. The research projects for each postdoc will be focused on producing new methods and software that can dramatically improve accuracy on large datasets, and hence will be used in biological data analysis. This work also involves proving theorems about the methods that we develop, using probability theory to predict performance under Markov models of evolution, but then testing these predictions in simulation. Research in my lab requires strong skills in algorithm design and analysis and software development. In addition, excellent interpersonal skills, oral and written communication skills, and a passion for research are also necessary.

Your qualifications: The ideal candidate will have all the following attributes:

Note that experience in bioinformatics or knowledge of biology is desirable but not necessary (and can be learned while in the position).
